  • "Dr. Urbanosky did a complete right shoulder replacement and rotator cuff repair for me in 2011. I met with her and she immediately recommended both an X-ray and MRI. Through each step, she showed me exactly where my problems were and what they looked like. She is very professional and personable, with a quick smile that put me at ease."
  • "I have found Dr. Leah Urbanosky to be most compassionate and understanding when discussing my health concerns. She has a great sense of humor that helps me feel at ease. I have found her to be honest in expressing medical advice and she has never made me feel rushed to have surgery. I feel completely safe with her medical knowledge and skilled hands of experience. I highly recommend Dr. Leah Urbanosky."
